this week’s color palette: golden yellows & green -perfect for thanksgiving

As the leaves fall and everyone is preparing for Thanksgiving there’s a transition in color palettes going on for the holidays. Most think of rust colors and oranges for October and Halloween. So a great transitional color palette for these weeks leading up to thanksgiving is a golden yellow and green. Fresh greens, herbs, wreaths can all adorn your home for Thanksgiving without looking like Christmas yet. Small punches of yellow or gold, with your glassware, a velvet ribbon tied around napkins etc. can elegantly adorn a November table setting or decor. The gold glasses I carry at the shop (that you see pictured) are gorgeous for a holiday table setting. They are made in Italy by Nason Morretti. There is a low multi-purpose tumbler,┬áchampagne tumbler, and a caraf available in this collection.

As I do each week I’ve selected paint colors from Benjamin Moore as a guide. If you are planning a party, paint chips can be a great tool to carry in your bag so that you can match your color palette as you selected items like linens, candles and stationery.
